You have to give us side, especially, photos. Many folks, including me, customized the dash on their 'bucket. Chassis number, if available - Total Performance stamped theirs (TP-XXXX) on the LH frame rail, just ahead of the firewall. Speedway - mostly, you were on your own, body and chassis. These numbers plus photos might give us a clue.

The frame is completely home made,the outside of the body looks just like any other 23 T,the dash is the only unusual part.Just curious if anyone had ever seen a dash built like this from a manufacturer. No ID tags anywhere on the body.Builder may have built his own body,he built everything else from scratch.

ID body ??

u need to re-post with a side view.. that's a custom dash !! there is a very good chance no one can tell who manuf the body. yr is another thing.. what are your concerns. measure the width of your windshield.. i know a total body was about one inch wider then a rod/race body.. but bottom line, i don't really think we're able to id it...

Not that important who made the body,just thought i would see if anyone had seen anything like it over the years. Always nice to have info when possible.The dash appears to be one piece with the body,not a separate component.
